Lead Toxicity & Climate Change:
Carbon Combustion Power

[GW&CV Loss č Pb mgt Loss– Quadrant 4 of the GRID]

  • Coal fired power can provide >12-45% of lead emissions

  • Over 17 million tons of lead deposited in fly ash in US 2000-2006

  • Coal emissions 41% of CO2 (2005) but 77% of SO2 (2000)

  • Overall impact on warming neutral or negative, little black carbon

  • Natural gas moderate CO2, little SO2 or Pb; large fugitive emissions

  • Oil high CO2, significant black carbon, SO2 & Pb

  • Biomass combustion produces black carbon & Pb
